— The 2019 Emmy nominations are in, and they came as firsts for many.

"Game of Thrones" has set the record with 32 Emmy nominations, including nods to first-time nominees Alfie Allen, Sophie Turner and Gwendoline Christie.

"To my friends: Kit, Peter, Gwen, Lena, Emilia, Nikolaj, Maisie, Carice, and especially Sophie whom I was in the trenches with for so much of this journey - I am honoured to share this with you," Allen said in a statement to CNN.

Joey King shared an emotional video from the moment she found out she was nominated for her work in "The Act."

"I cannot believe this is happening. I've just been Nominated for an Emmy for my work in The Act," she said on Twitter. "There's so many people to thank for this moment and getting to talk to my mom and Patricia immediately after it was announced was so special. I'm in shock."
